JUMPSTART FUNDING

Please read information below as changes have been made to the JUMPSTART program. 

When families need a little financial boost to get kids involved in a sport, dance team or other active program, they need to fill out an application. This needs to be done before the fees are due, as the money goes right to the organization. Applications for assistance can typically be submitted from January 15 to November 1; with the goal for funding to be equitably distributed over Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter activities.

 
Your family meets our financial need requirements and your kid is registered, but what about the skates/cleats/racquets/gloves/helmets/uniforms they need to play? Not to worry. Jumpstart has you covered. The application asks for equipment details. Funds can also be provided for adaptive equipment to help kids with special needs.  
 
Some other important points to note as part of the application process:
 
• Cheques are made payable to the service organization identified as the “Payee” in the application form. The Payee is a service organization (such as a local Hockey Association or gymnastic club) which coordinates the sports or physical activity on behalf of the qualifying youth/child.
• Cheques are never sent to the parent/guardian directly.
• All approvals are at the sole discretion of the local Jumpstart Chapter and designated Canadian Tire Regional Manager; and are subject to local demands and Chapter budgets.
 
If you have additional questions, call 1-844-YES-PLAY or visit the FAQ Section

Hockey Canada Assist (opens August 1, 2022)

The Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund was created in response to the many families experiencing financial challenges as a result of COVID-19. The goal of the Fund is to help Canadian youth access hockey and return to the game they love.

With more than $1 million dollars in funding available for the 2021/2022 season, the Assist Fund will provide up to $500 per player in registration fee subsidies to approved applicants who are registered with a Hockey Canada-sanctioned association.

Who qualifies for Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund?

Registration Fee Qualification: Applicants must be registering a child with a Hockey Canada-sanctioned local hockey association (HA) for the current season.

What is required to apply for the Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund?
